Since the club's chartering in 1986, its members have worked on a variety of projects in the local community, such as Terrific Kids, Head Start, and many others. Proceeds from past fundraising events have gone to scholarships at local area high schools, as well as projects at Elementary Schools. The club worked on sponsoring several families for the holidays and Santa's Hut during Light Up Clermont at the Clermont City Center.
According to Cathy Bateham, 2016-2107 Club President: "We are proud of our club's 30 years of service to the community. The South Lake Kiwanis club members thank everyone who contributes to this important work. You are truly helping Kiwanis make a difference in our community."
